Florida.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

...THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Bands of showers with isolated thunderstorms will continue to move
north through the area today. Thunderstorms that develop will be
capable of producing strong gusty winds, locally heavy rains,
deadly lightning strikes, and isolated tornadoes.

...FLOOD IMPACT...
Widespread rain is expected today on top of already saturated
ground. The heavy rain will produce flooding of low lying and
poor drainage areas as well as the ponding of water on roadways.
Motorists should exercise caution.

...SURGE/COASTAL FLOOD IMPACT...
Breezy winds turning onshore this afternoon will cause storm surge
of around 3 feet this afternoon along the coast of Levy and
Citrus counties. Coastal residents should be alert for later
statements or warnings, and take action to protect property.

...RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Breezy winds and high surf over the Gulf waters will continue to
produce an increased risk of rip currents along area beaches
today and tonight.

...MARINE IMPACTS...
Breezy winds will continue to increase across the Gulf waters
today and tonight as Subtropical Storm Alberto continues to move
north, with wind speeds of 25 to 40 knots and seas building to 15
feet. This will create hazardous boating conditions for small
craft operators.

...RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
River flooding is forecast to occur on the Myakka River at Myakka
River State Park and the Alafia River at Riverview. Residents
living along rivers or faster flowing streams should remain aware
of water levels and be ready to move to higher ground should
flooding be observed.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday.

...THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Numerous to widespread showers and thunderstorms are expected
each day through the middle of the week. Thunderstorms will be
capable of producing strong gusty winds, locally heavy rain, and
frequent deadly lightning strikes.

...FLOOD IMPACT...
Deep moisture over the area will allow for the possibility of
heavy rain each day through the middle of the week. The heavy
rain will produce flooding of low lying and poor drainage areas as
well as the ponding of water on roadways. Motorists should
exercise caution.

...SURGE/COASTAL FLOOD IMPACT...
Continued onshore winds will create around 3 feet of storm surge
along the Nature Coast on Monday, leading to higher than normal
high tides and coastal flooding. Coastal residents should be
alert for later statements or warnings, and take action to protect
property.

...RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Breezy winds and high surf over the Gulf waters will continue to
produce an increased risk of rip currents along area beaches
Monday and Tuesday.

...MARINE IMPACTS...
Winds of 20 to 30 knots with seas of up to 15 feet will continue
to produced hazardous boating conditions for small craft
operators on Monday. High pressure will build back into the area
Monday night through Wednesday, allowing boating conditions to
gradually improve.

...RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
Heavy rain through the next several days will increase the risk of
flooding on areas rivers this week. Residents living along rivers
or faster flowing streams should remain aware of water levels and
be ready to move to higher ground should flooding be observed.
